Well I did the unthinkable. I bought a 2002 GSXR1000. I really like the 2002 R1 but dealer around here would not budge from MSRP. Then I came across a 2002 GSXR with 880 miles on it. Already had a full titanium tri-oval Yoshimura exhaust and a Power Commander IIIR on it. The guy had it dyno'ed recently at 158hp at the rear wheel. Don't be to hard on me I'm still a huge fan of the R1 and Yamaha as I still own a 85 RZ350 and a 90 FZR. Anyway I hope everyones enjoying the riding season!!Peace!

Gixxers are great......

Too bad gixxer.com doesnt compare to r1-forum...jk

I almost bought a gixxer last weekend, if they would have had the financing deal like Yamaha Id probably be riding it right now. I am patiently waiting for my R1. I just put the deposit on a Blue 2002 R1 scheduled to be here this month. I had to drive 100 mi to a dealer that doesnt believe in price gouging. In the Denver area R-1's are bringing $1K over retail if u can find one in stock. I've seen alot of nice Gixxers as I was shopping. Guess I dont need to tell you what they were traded in on....lol. I'm not knocking the gixxer at all, both bikes have there strong points. Hell if I win the lottery tonight I'll have one of each. Enjoy your new ride.

Peace
